Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) May 13, 2011
ImportGenius.com announced today that it has joined the Arizona Technology Council, the state’s leading high-tech advocacy group. As a leader in providing Internet services for importers and exporters across the country, Import Genius hopes joining the council will help it get back to its Arizona roots.
The firm's founders expect participation in the Council's events to provide a new channel for contributing to Arizona's entrepreneurial ecosystem and opening up new partnership opportunities with high-tech businesses in the region.
“We’re proud to have started a successful Internet business here in Arizona,” says ImportGenius.com co-founder Ryan Petersen. “The state doesn’t get the recognition it deserves as a great place to start a high-tech company, so we’re thrilled to contribute to the AZ Tech Council’s efforts to raise the profile of Web-based businesses.”
The Scottsdale business intelligence service will take advantage of the Council’s training seminars, networking events, recruiting services and public seminars, while offering special promotions to other members.
